Thanks Mary for posting all those wonderful photos from your adventures in Barcelona!
Although I wasn't there it made it seem that much more real. It looked like a lot of fun...
Look forward to seeing you soon in Las Vegas and it was great to put some of the names to faces from your photos..
Everyone looked so happy...

Oh, "happy" by all means - but in my case, on that evening, "drunk" is even more like it... And it seems that that was the only evening really when people got their cameras out. Typical, isn't it... :?

Bernadine, Leslie, Ann, Diana, Marie - you're welcome and thank you for all the kind words. I was just so very excited when I finally figured out how to post them :D . There is no stopping me now, look out :roll: :lol: .

Warmest regards,
Mary

Ann, I simply think of you that night as very happy - had no clue and if you hadn't said something, I would have never known. Still - you were happy :D .

Oh my god, Mary, I just saw those photos! Some of them I really can't remember, but I can definitely remember the one, where you grabbed my arm and pulled me down straight into the focus - I was so unbelievable unprepared and from this very moment on I was afraid that picture could ever show up anywhere Image

Hi, I just looked at Mary's photographs and you all look fab in them! Ann, Nicole, you both look fab as does everyone else. Great memories, everyone is radiant and glowing and happy (and not just from the drink, Ann!). What a celebration :)

Well done Mary - keep the photos coming.. I can't wait to see the ones from San Jose :)

What fabulous pictures! As I sit here on a dark, drizzly Manchester night shortly setting off on an overnight trip to Dublin, it all seems so long ago – but only 4 weeks! Your photos will help me keep alive the memories of a great few days in beautiful Barcelona.

Some names for you. I’m your first question mark (in between Albert and Trish (in background)). In Guru’s you can see Frank sitting down, Trish just behind him, Frances with the red skirt and white bag, my legs (it was the gin!), Irina, Maarten... Oh, and the “guy in the mirror” is Frank, too.

I’m glad you got to the Parca Guell; I was heading there too, but managed to end up at Palau Guell – and it was shut for repairs!

Thanks again for the photos; and greetings to all who were there, wherever you are now!

Ciaran,
I hate loose ends, so am very grateful for your help on this. Almost going to Parc Guell, how weird would that have been - even more forum members there in all of Barcelona, what's the chance?

Maarten,
Thanks so much for helping me out also on this!

Warmest regards,
Mary
